Injections of the optimum dose of antigens were given as part of the treatment protocol as wasoral and intravenous (i.v.) antioxidants; heat depuration (sauna); physical therapy with massage and exerciseunder environmentally controlled conditions; oxygen therapy at 4-8 L/min for 2 hours with a special wood-grade cellophane reservoir and a glass oxygen container. Many patients were sensitive to plastics; therefore,exposures to these were kept to a minimum. Autogenous lymphocytic factor was given as an immune mod-ulator. Of 28 patients, 27 did well and returned to work. One patient improved but did not return to workduring the period of study.

Total body load (Rea, 1997a,b,c) was reduced by having the patients drink less polluted glass bottled spring water and eat organic food with a rotary diet so that the patient would not eat the same food more than once in 4 days.
